Announcement of IUCr Young and Early Career Scientists Awards
The  International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) and the Local Organizing Committee of the 2024 IUCr High Pressure Workshop
are pleased to announce the IUCr Young and Early Career Scientists Award program for young researchers attending the 2024 IUCr High Pressure Workshop in Lund, Sweden.
This award aims to support and encourage promising early-career scientists working in the field of high-pressure crystallography to participate in our High Pressure Workshop.

1. The award will help cover accommodation fee for selected recipients.
2. Applicants must be currently enrolled in a PhD program or hold a postdoctoral research position.
3. Applicants must be under the age of 35 at the time of the workshop.
4. Applicants should be actively involved in research related to high-pressure crystallography or closely related fields.

Interested candidates, including those who have already registered to the workshop, should submit their curriculum vitae (CV) and a list of publications to by July 5th.
The subject line of the email should be "IUCr Award Application - 2024 High Pressure Workshop."

We are waiting for your applications!

Dear Participants,

We are delighted to welcome you to the 2024 Workshop of the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) Commission on High Pressure organized and hosted by the European Spallation Source and MAX IV Laboratory.
This workshop will take place in person in Lund and also be streamed for remote participation.

High-pressure research has made remarkable progress in various scientific fields over the past decades. This advancement can be attributed to significant improvements in high-pressure apparatus and the development of advanced static and dynamic probes. Conducting X-ray and neutron scattering experiments under extreme conditions poses significant challenges, requiring dedicated techniques to collect spectroscopic and crystallographic data with unprecedented speed and resolution.

The workshop aims to bring together researchers who utilize extreme-conditions crystallography in conjunction with other experimental and computational methods. By studying a wide range of material properties across various scientific disciplines such as condensed-matter physics, solid-state chemistry, geophysics, materials science, biology, and nanotechnology. We hope to foster extensive discussions and interdisciplinary collaborations by bringing together researchers using high-pressure in home laboratories, at neutron sources, with free electron lasers and at synchrotron radiation facilities.

We particularly encourage students, postdocs, and early career scientists to participate. It is a great opportunity for young researchers to get familiar with state-of-the-art methods and interact with the X-ray and neutron scattering high-pressure community. As a part of the workshop, we will organize a half-day tutorial with hands-on examples X-ray and neutron large-scale facilities. It will help you to devise your own research program based on X-ray and neutron scattering experiments, as well as to write competitive proposals.

We look forward to your active participation and fruitful interactions during the workshop.

Best regards,
Damian Paliwoda (chair) and the Local Organizing Committee
